This is getting ridiculous. Is there a single place where these ACORN guys worked that didn’t have serious acts of voter fraud committed?
More than 2,000 voter registration forms filed in northern Indiana’s Lake County by a liberal activist group this week have turned out to be bogus, election officials said Thursday.
Over the past four years, a dozen states have investigated complaints of fraudulent registrations filed by ACORN. On Tuesday, Nevada authorities raided an ACORN office in Las Vegas, Nevada, where workers are accused of registering members of the Dallas Cowboys football team. And the group has become the target of Republican attacks on voter fraud, a perennial GOP issue.
A subsidiary of the group was paid $800,000 by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama‘s campaign to register voters for the 2008 primaries, and ACORN’s political wing endorsed Obama back in February.
I should write a song called “victory at all cost” or something, because I honestly don’t know how to respond to this sort of thing any more. Mrs. Ahab and I were talking about it yesterday on the drive home, and the only conclusion we can come to is that the people doing all this honestly believe that they know what’s best for us, and so that justifies (in their minds) breaking the law so that their guy can win. It’s actually terrifying when I think about it; because it matches a level of zeal and fervor that I had only previously encountered in religious fanatics.
